  • Practical applications of the Semantic Web techniques in e-business, e-commerce, e-government and e-learning


CSWWS 2009 will feature two research and Work-In-Progress tracks. The objective of the research track is to solicit original papers that present accomplished researches on the area of the Semantic Web.  The Work-In-Progress track aims at providing an opportunity for practitioners to present their on-going research on the theory and application of the Semantic Web, even when implementation or deployment has not been completed.


Accepted submissions will be published in the symposium Proceeding. Furthermore, all accepted papers will be invited to be published after applying requested revisions in the "Canadian Semantic Web 2" book. (The first volume of this book that is related to the CSWWS 2006 is available
